Children and adults alike turned out in force for the annual Christmas Parade through downtown Berryville Saturday morning. Led by the Clarke County High School Marching Band, dozens of organizations marched down Main Street in advance of “The Big Man.” Spectators lined the route as parade participants threw handfuls of candy and wished everyone a happy holiday season. After about thirty minutes of festivities the moment everyone had been waiting for arrived. Santa greeted the town from high atop the John Enders Fire Department truck ringing in the holiday season.
Later that evening Santa reappeared at the tree lighting ceremony at Rose Hill Park. The Clarke County Community Band played holiday music and Mayor Kirby counted down the moments before he threw the switch to light the town tree. Residents gathered on Main Street after the event for refreshments to close out the day’s festivities.
